2 pounds small sweet potatoes (about 5), peeled and cut lengthwise into 1-inch wedges
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
Sea salt and freshly grated nutmeg, to taste, for serving
Only a small bit of oil and maple syrup are needed to coat these thick wedges of potatoes. Roasting them at a high temperature browns them well and deepens the flavors. A fresh sprinkle of lemon zest adds flavor without fat.
